    After a mini-bye weekend, the Chicago Bears returned to Halas Hall on Monday to review film from their 16-14 win over the Detroit Lions and hold a short practice. As he recovers from broken ribs, rookie quarterback Justin Fields worked to the side with other injured players during the portion of practice open to the media, and coach Matt Nagy said Bears medical staff still is working through whether Fields will be cleared this week. Without Fields playing against the Lions, the Bears couldn’t assess the growth of their most important player. But there were still moments that mattered for the Bears future in the unconvincing win against the 0-10-1 Lions. As the Bears move on from last week’s tumult around Nagy’s job status and focus on Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field, here are five significant things to take from Thursday’s win. 1. Darnell Mooney topped 120 receiving yards for the second straight game and third time this season. Mooney said after the game he wasn’t happy with his performance against the...
    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields said Wednesday he used the bye week to rest his body as he gears up for the second half of the season, starting with Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens at Soldier Field. As the Bears resumed practices at Halas Hall this week, here are five things we heard from the rookie and his coaches. 1. Fields said he studied Lamar Jackson film at Ohio State. Fields expressed admiration for the fourth-year quarterback, who has 2,447 passing yards with 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions and 639 rushing yards and two touchdowns this season. “There’s not many guys who are like Lamar Jackson,” Fields said of the Ravens QB. “He does stuff that some receivers, running backs can’t even do. … Just all of the backlash he got coming out of college saying he was a running back and stuff like that, he’s just proving everybody wrong and, of course, he’s one of the best in the league right now. So just seeing that young Black quarterbacks can get the job done —...

    100 best sci-fi films of all time, according to critics Euronext Open to More Acquisitions Under New Strategic Plan, CEO Says Most fantasy football owners had given up on Cole Kmet this season; some are still waiting on Darnell Mooney; others have had their eye on Pat Freiermuth for a few weeks.

    Getty Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney are developing a solid connection. Look out for the Justin Fields-Darnell Mooney connection. The Chicago Bears rookie quarterback and the second-year wide receiver out of Tulane have been spending extra time working out together, and the results have already begun to show on the field. Fields went 11-17 for 209 yards and an interception in his first career win over the Detroit Lions Week 4. It was just the second start of the rookie QB’s career, and it was a career game for Mooney, who caught five passes for 125 yards. It’s was the first 100+ yard game Mooney has had since his arrival in 2020, and it’s an encouraging sign if you’re a Bears fan. Several of Fields’ best throws this season have gone to Mooney, and their developing connection on the field likely has a great deal to do with the amount of work they’re putting in together off it.

    Chicago Bears: What does week 2 hold for WR Darnell Mooney? Usayd Koshul September 17, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit When the Chicago Bears host the Cincinnati Bengals in week 2, wide receiver Darnell Mooney will be a name to watch as a player who can be a reason the Bears finally get in the win column. Mooney, who totaled five receptions for 26 yards, averaging 5.20 yards per reception. Labeled as a breakout candidate heading into 2021, the Bengals provide Mooney with the perfect opportunity to have a big game, further cementing his status as the Bears WR2. “They play in your face, man-to-man, a little zone here and there but I mean, they’re not going to hide anything,” Mooney said via the Bears official YouTube Channel. “There’s some opportunities out there, for sure, this week.” Assessing the Cincinnati defense, Mooney will likely be matched up against Chidobe Awuzie throughout the game. Assisting Awuzie will be Safeties Jesse Bates III and Vonn Bell, both...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS) — The quarterbacks are getting a lot of the attention at Bears camp, and rightfully so – but it’s the top two pass catchers that have really been standing out.

    Chicago Bears: How Darnell Mooney has improved this offseason Usayd Koshul August 7, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy had nothing but praise for wide receiver Darnell Mooney on Saturday morning prior to the team’s second padded practice of the weekend. After nine starts and 61 receptions as a rookie in 2020, Mooney entered the offseason with massive expectations of taking another major step forward. With new faces at the quarterback position, consistent wide receiver play is a necessity for the Bears, who feel content about the wide receiver room featuring Mooney and eighth-year veteran Allen Robinson. A year ago, at this exact time, Mooney was an unknown commodity who took advantage of every opportunity, with results translating onto gamedays. “Mooney right now is on fire with his route running,” said Bears head coach Matt Nagy prior to practice on Saturday morning. “He’s running some routes right now that I really haven’t seen him and A-Rob running those routes.” ...

    Chicago Bears: Darnell Mooney ready for a major jump in year two Usayd Koshul June 10, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditAfter finishing his rookie season with the Chicago Bears with nine starts, 61 receptions, and four touchdowns, wide receiver Darnell Mooney will enter year two as a breakout candidate for the Bears. Some would argue that Mooney broke out last season, but the former fifth-round pick is just scratching the surface of how good he really can be. The plan for Mooney is simple: Develop into WR2, becoming a perfect complement to eight-year veteran Allen Robinson. Mooney showcased flashes of how complete of a player he could develop into last season, quickly becoming a starter and never looking back. Chicago’s coaching staff was impressed with Mooney’s rookie campaign, and entering two, Mooney’s expectations are sky-high. “They told me I exceeded expectations and that I played very well,” Mooney said via the Bears official Youtube page. “To me, I didn’t exceed everything I wanted to accomplish but going into year two, I just want to...
    Getty WR Allen Robinson of the Chicago Bears is defended by Jalen Ramsey of the L.A. Rams. Fans of the Chicago Bears seem to have Jalen Ramsey’s number, particularly after their latest exchange. After Bears fans began to rib Ramsey about the way wideout Darnell Mooney burned him on one particular play last season, the Los Angeles Rams All-Pro cornerback took to social media to respond. “Can’t wait till week 1 so all these lame a– Bears fans can stfu about they number 2 wr…It’s funny kus they kno better too,” Ramsey wrote on his Instagram story, which was captured on Twitter by Daniel Greenberg of FanSided. “Can’t wait till week 1 so all these lame ass Bears fans can stfu about they number 2 wr.” – Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey pic.twitter.com/BdAP1L5kU2 — Daniel Greenberg (@ChiSportUpdates) May 18, 2021 The latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    The Chicago Bears will not have Roquan Smith or Darnell Mooney for their Wild Card matchup with the New Orleans Saints. Tough blow for Matt Nagy’s team. Matt Nagy’s Chicago Bears will be without two key starters as they look to upset Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara and the New Orleans Saints in Sunday’s Wild Card game. The Bears downgraded linebacker Roquan Smith and wide receiver Darnell Mooney to out and they will be missed greatly vs. the Saints. Smith enjoyed a breakout season for the Bears as the former first round pick out of Georgia played out of his mind this year, being named a Second-Team All-Pro. He left the season finale vs. the Green Bay Packers with an elbow injury in the first quarter and missed practice all week. He was second in the NFL in solo tackles (96) and tackles-for-loss (18) and seventh in tackles with 139, a career-high and team-best. Manti Te’o may be activated from the practice squad to take his place on the roster.Bears will be severely short-handed vs. the Saints“He’s playing at a dominant...
    Getty Rookie WR Darnell Mooney of the Chicago Bears Rookie wide receiver Darnell Mooney has been one of the most exciting players to watch on the Chicago Bears offense this season. One of three fifth-round picks for Chicago this year, Mooney has proven to be one of the draft’s biggest steals. So far the young wideout has checked all the boxes: His speed is undeniable and a definite asset, his route-running has been exceptional and his hands have been magnetic (Mooney just dropped his first and only pass of the season last week in Jacksonville). That lone drop seems to have ticked Mooney off in a big way, however, and it looks like he’s putting in extra time working on his pass-catching as a result. A video initially shared on Twitter by Chicago Sports Performance Doctor Michael Tal Risher has now gone viral, and it says a great deal about the kind of player the Bears have in Mooney. Dr. Risher, who has worked with several Bears players, including David Montgomery and Allen Robinson, shared a video of...
    Getty Rookie WR Darnell Mooney One of the brightest spots for the Chicago Bears this season has been the emergence of rookie wide receiver Darnell Mooney. A fifth-round draft pick out of Tulane, Mooney has become the team’s clear No. 2 receiver behind Allen Robinson, and he has a highlight reel that’s growing more impressive by the week. Through his first 14 games, Mooney has 46 catches for 499 yards and 4 touchdowns, and he just broke the record previously held by Harlon Hill for most receptions by a Bears rookie wideout. Hill’s record was set back in 1954, so Mooney has opened more than a few eyes in Chicago — and it likely won’t be long until the rest of the league’s eyes are on him, as well.

    It’s starting to get down to crunch time as the end of the fantasy football regular season draws nearer. Most owners can’t afford to lose as they jockey for playoff position, but injuries and bye weeks are having an impact on the players in which owners can trust. Streamers in favorable matchups and end-of-bench sleepers are needed more than ever to help carry teams to victory. If you know you’re going to have issues in the next few weeks or you’re one of the lucky few that already has a playoff berth effectively wrapped up, it’s important to look ahead. That means that owners are both simultaneously looking at players on the free agent wire as streaming options not only for the Week 9 waiver period, but also for Week 10 and beyond. Finding the right pickups isn’t an exact science. You may add someone in hopes of playing them next week only to watch them get injured or benched this week. Still, if you have a revolving door roster spot or a player that you’re not planning on playing this...
    Week 5 of the fantasy football season is here, and there are a lot of variables that fantasy owners are facing on a weekly basis when constructing their teams. From massive injury issues to the COVID-19 breakout in the  Titans’ organization to the movement of the Patriots-Chiefs game, it seems that each passing week in fantasy football has created a new challenge. This week, scheduled byes are starting up and four key teams will be off in Week 6 with the Patriots, Raiders, Saints, and Seahawks all set to be idle. With that approaching, fantasy owners will soon be scrambling to check the waiver wire and find worthwhile streamers and sleepers. At this point in the post-Week 5 waiver period, looking ahead and grabbing a free agent that could be the next “must-have pickup” can be a viable strategy. It’s likely there are a few spots on your roster that are revolving doors at this point — or, you should, at least. Yes, it’s nice to hold onto your favorite preseason sleepers, but after four games, it’s time to start...
    Getty WR Allen Robinson of the Chicago Bears After Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson removed all things Bears from his social media accounts, Twitter went a bit bananas. Fans were upset, analysts hyper-analyzed and his teammates began sharing their thoughts about the situation. Wide receiver and sometimes running back Cordarrelle Patterson has called for Robinson’s extension multiple times on Twitter, most recently the Monday following Chicago’s comeback win against Detroit. Extend extend extend @ChicagoBears — cordarrelle patterson (@ceeflashpee84) September 14, 2020 Tuesday, Tarik Cohen added his voice to the growing chorus calling for a Robinson extension.
